, a political environment that could, in fact, i in danger and threaten the civil freedoms of the united states, if all of a sudden the american people demand a response that congress feels it must respond and civil liberties could be the first thing that goes overboard. you mentioned the national defense authorization act. i think it's a very legitimate concern. one of the principal focu focusf our advisory panel, principle focuses was whether or not and how you use the military in the homeland. if you create a panic or a stress environment in the united states, there is a danger that the executive branch will simply respond and use whatever resources are available to it without regard to law or restrictions such as -- which, of course, we know a doctrine that prohibits the use of military and homeland. it was one of the five principal focuses of our advisory panel, our concern over this type of environment. the ndaa, the national defense authorization act in fact in our view does begin to move the military into a domestic responsibility and into a domestic function. this is not good. and that
to control our preferences. we are victims of our environments growing up. we are victims of our context that we live in and, therefore, we all, you know, are not "responsible for that behavior and therefore should be mitigating." when you look at the testimony that comes in, whether it's from a mother or from neighbors or from teachers that are talking about really mitigating circumstances, they are the rotten social background kind of arguments, the abuse and the suffering that that individual experienced and those things show up in the brain. the brain is also a sponge. the brain isn't simply created by genetics and it's very much shaped by environment. and so my mentor john monaghan likened the problem of predicting violent people to predicting violent storms. when you think of meteorology, you think of the difficulty of classifying a hurricane and tracking a hurricane, making judgments about such complex behavior that has sort of chaotic premises underlying it, you're going to make lots of mistakes. you're going to make lots of mistakes in both directions. sometimes you're going to

revenue. it will need to be done in an environment where as we broaden the base, we both contribute to deficit reduction and hopefully are able to lower rates. on the business side, we have a contradiction in our fiscal tax system. our statutory rate is high. our effective rate is not as high. when you look at the united states against other countries, it the statutory rate makes the u.s. look unattractive compared to others. for individual firms, their average tax rate is much lower because of all of the complicated provisions that are part of the code now. it would be a challenge to take on those individual credit. there's no way way to bring the rate down. that is something i think we need to do to maintain competitiveness abroad. >> you still believe that going down the road we need to reduce that to get the rate down? >> i do. when one looks at a table of international tax rates, it stands up at u.s. statutory rate is high. it is a complicated story to tell that the average rate is lower. it does not affect all businesses equally. we need a simpler tax code. >> could you briefl

with an update on the horse meat scandal playing out across europe. britain's environment secretary is now calling for a revamp of how food is tested in that country saying courage system relies too much on trusting the paperwork that comes with the meat shipments them glied to begin random dna checks on meat products. traces of horse meat have turned up in frozen meals such as burgers and lasagna. it has been found on fresh beef pasta sauce on restaurant menus, school lunches and in hospital meals. >>> starting today, maker mark will no longer be cutting the am of alcohol in its famous whiskey. customers were outraged when the whiskey maker announceed a supply shortage that would result in them dropping the alcohol ton content from 45% to 42%. the brand listened and is now restoring the original recipe and cutting back on overseas shipments. >> what we heard back ways very humbling very clear feedback from our customers and what they told us was that they would rather have the occasional shortage moving forward than in any way change maker's mark. >> here the irony. people will be lining

is doing is acclimating to your new less than perfect environment. it's come from a greenhouse most of the time. give it time to acclimate. people will bring it home, put it where they want it, make sure it's getting enough light. >> do you want direct light snz. >> depends on the plant. this plant will be able to live in low light. all of these plants are very easy to grow. but you put this in that spot and starts to lose leaves. what a person is inclined to do is move the plant to another spot. or add more water. and what that's going to do, you don't want to over water the plant. you want to give the plant a couple weeks to acclimate. if you do have a saucer like this so you are not getting water all over, don't let the plant sit in that water for more than 24 hours. if the access water, get rid of it. you can sour the soil. >> if you do want to repot, there are specific soils. african violets like a house mixture. and your orchids like dark and char colonel. you can use a water soluble plant food. this is a leaf shine that will give it shine. and the other thing to keep in mind
environment, it may not actually make the most sense. if you're paying less than 4% on your mortgage, if you can -- you can take that money and put it into retirement investing, you could make even conservatively 4%, 6%. that may be a smarter way to spend that savings. >> okay. what if i'm in debt? how do i deal with the debt issues and save for retirement? >> here's something that might be a little controversial. but you don't want to enter retirement with a lot of high priced debt. what we're talking about are credit cards, maybe student loans that you took on for your kids or auto loans. you want to pay that off. you might be paying 8% 10%, 12% on. that here's the controversial part -- maybe for a while you want to step back your retirement savings and put this money into paying down that debt. if you're paying 12% on debt that's going sap your retirement. nay off as soon as you can. >> donna rosato. thank you. >>> from saving your money to saving your strength. a ceo of an energy project explains why you might be more productive just by taking it easy. she'll explai
is the right time to cut. maggie thatcher did it the midst of all environments, arguing that longer term gains would more than justify acute short term pay? >> real serious thing, government spending is taxation, it really is. government doesn't create resources, it redistributes resources. when you should cut unnecessary spending is in the middle of a recession. i know people will tell you it's not true, but it is true. you can't tax an economy out of a recession. you just plain can't. >> neil: and i wanted to get with this into melissa francis into this, whether the first report out of the treasury indicates the whisperings of that. you can't hang your hat on tax hikes and can't be hoping and praying important another internet boom? >> you can't. you have to do a low rate tax and free trade and minimal regulations and get out of the way. the economy will get it out of the sefgs. that is what it is supposed to do. governments aren't the job creators. they set the rules and set the stage and let the private sector handle it. it's unfortunately not what this guy is doing. i hope somewhere along
, the environment would be destroyed, the world would come to an end by us building that pipeline. you know, we're multiple decades past. it's worked very well. there haven't been those disasters that people claimed. but on top of that, i know my friend from louisiana mentioned the environmental impact, and, you know, that it makes sense, the pipeline is the safest way to move oil but on top of that, you have a choice and the senator from north dakota made it very clear, that is you get the -- to refine it in china or the u.s. i don't know about anybody here but i would bet we all agree between the environmental standards, we have a better environmental record than china does in refinery and refining of oil products. so it makes sense for us to do it here. on top of that, i know and, again, from alaska which people travel there not just for the jobs and opportunity but the beauty of alaska. we have more visitors who want to see the pipeline, to visit the pipeline. when i went down on a rafting trip you're in nowhere land. unbelievable beauty but one of the last things you see when you come down
political environment has been an opportunity for lawmakers like republican james sensenbrenner of wisconsin to claim they are the new mainstream view on global warming. do you believe global warming is caused by the activity of human beings? >> partially, but not completely. >> hockenberry: percentage? >> can't predict that. >> hockenberry: 30%, 50%? >> well, i know it's not zero and i know it's not a hundred. i can't tell you what number it is in between. >> hockenberry: if 97% of scientists say it is mostly or significantly caused by human activity, what do you say to that? >> they are entitled to their opinion. but they are going to have to... >> hockenberry: do you think this will ever be settled scientifically if 97% consensus doesn't settle it for you? >> well, i... you know, i think that it's up to the scientists and their supporters to convince the public that this is the right thing to do. and the supporters of that side of the argument in the congress have been a huge flop. >> hockenberry: i visited one of the key democrs on this issue, massachusetts senator john kerry. what had h

they are supportive of them controlled than they were back in december of 1993. even the environment looks different. even more important than that, it is really that moderate seat held by democrats do not belong to democrats any more. do belong to very conservative republicans. seats that were held by moderate republicans are now held by democrats. that makes the democrats all that much -- that makes the dynamic all that more problematic. if you are a gun owner that it's a certain democratic profile, that makes it more likely that you are actually eight republicans. host: host: you wrote about this. ece. is amy's pi guest: we still have to do it immigration reform. host: biscuit the viewer is involved -- let's get the viewers involved. caller: we should be able to vote on our own gun control and immigration policies. host: what do you mean by that? caller: you can vote whether you want immigration control, yes or no. enforce our laws we already have. the american people can vote. the details can be worked out by congress. host: do you think the electorate moves forward on these issues by voting for

are quite concerned about the handoff that occurs in a post-acute environment where, essentially, there's no particular incentive for the acute care to really track what occurs when someone's post--acute. -- post-acute. recent attention to readmission strategy and whether we're seeing too many readmissions and really a disincentive to do so. but it's really the much broader question which is how do you encourage the full full array of providers that take care of a particular patient to begin to coordinate in much more closely in terms of the utilization of servicesesome so bundling i think is really as some of us think of an attempt to try and look at those incentives and to try and do a better job of helping patients manage throughout that full array of services so that from a preadmit to an acute care or episode to a postacute management over time that there's more attention given to those handoffs and more coordination in terms of the sharing of information so that, essentially, the patient isn't having to sort of reestablish the data set every time they see a different provider whet

be a virtuous cycle, it saves tax dollars, improves the environment, reduces the damage from flooding, and all the attendant costs. it's a class eck example of what the federal government should learn from 200 years of experience trying to engineer the mississippi river and instead allowing some cases nature to take its course and avoid more expensive and worse damage. and this is what we need to do across the federal government. we don't have to spend twice as much money on health care as most of the developed countries for outcomes that are mediocre at best. we don't have to spend more money on defense than 12 or 13 of the remaining largest defense budgets, and on weapons that in many cases like our nuclear arsenal, but we have far more than we need and can ever use and can afford. we can pare that down, save tens of millions of dollars and still be the most powerful nation in the world. for the outrageous crop insurance that encourages reckless and expensive behavior by paying farmers to plant crops on land that never should have been cultivated in the first place. while we will control spe

[ laughter ] >> but at the same time, i wish i'd had a father who was around and involved. >> reporter: while this isn't the first time the president has talked about being raised by a single mom, political analysts say friday's intimate appeal may be indicative of a more aggressive president obama. >> we are definitely seeing a different president second term than we saw first term. first-term president was cautious. second-term president having gone over the hump of re-election, visibly seems more comfortable being himself, being mo
